I feed mine rats. Just be carefull not to feed to much, they tend to regurge when eating to much. He also enjoy a frog every now and then.

Now this could be of the subspecies N. nigricincta or N. nigricollis.

If they accept that N. nigricincta is a full species then you cannot keep Western barred spitters without a permit and if they dont accept that and say that all three are subspecies of Naja nigricollis then you will need a permit for your animal too.

Look for the explanation under the Aspidelaps thread.


Yes, this I know but currently it is still legal to keep N. nigricollis without a permit, thus it is still consedered an exotic.

Okay I just thought I would warn you, unless you have a very good lawyer and access to recognised herpetologists who will testify for you I would keep a low profile with these snakes.

Werner may be in luck. Here is a paper that provides evidence for Naja nigricincta being a separate species from N. nigricollis (but retains woodi as a ssp. of nigricincta):

Thanks WW. Now if he has a problem he can just drag out this paper and show them.
